Week 15: at Detroit Lions

All WR vs DET

FBG says: Good matchup. Mitchell Trubisky had the best game of his short career last week as he completed 78% of his 32 pass attempts for 271 yards and a touchdown while also rushing in another touchdown--his first multi-touchdown game ever. Trubisky has been very efficient over the last two games with just under a 79% completion rate with two touchdowns and no interceptions--the first time he has put together back to back games without a turnover. Still, though, he is an unpredictable young quarterback in a run-first offense that would rather not have him sling the ball all over the field if possible. Dontrelle Inman had been leading the Bears receiving corps since joining the team five weeks ago, and despite playing more snaps than any other receiver, Inman was held without a single target last week after getting targeted just twice the week prior. It was Kendall Wright who made an appearance last week with a whopping 11 targets out of absolutely nowhere, as Wright had seen more than five targets just three times prior to this game. Wright did look good last week as he hauled in 10 of those targets for 107 yards, but he is not a receiver you can trust based on the inconsistency we have seen in this offense. The Lions secondary has had a tough last few weeks against opposing quarterbacks as they have allowed over 265 passing yards and two touchdowns in each of the last three games, resulting in the third most fantasy points allowed to the position over that span. In fact, the Lions have given up the third most fantasy points to quarterbacks since Week 9 of the season. This comes after they had a strong start to the year, allowing just the 12th fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks over their first seven games with 10 interceptions over that span. Darius Slay has been playing well all season long, and we saw it again last week as he helped hold Mike Evans to just two receptions on five targets for 25 yards. It is the other cornerbacks that have been hurting the Lions. With Quandre Diggs looking rough in the last few games, Kendall Wright should have a good chance at beating him out of the slot here. Darius Slay may not even shadow a Bears receiver this week, but if he does, Inman will be the likely target.
